Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Keemun, Lapsang Suochong, Liquorice Root
Description: An intriguing blend of two classic teas from China: A Keemun tea from Anhui Province with a natural cinnamon quality, and the robust pine-smoked savoury addition of a Lapsang Suochong from Fujian Province. This combination is rounded off with the addition of liquorice root, adding a natural lingering sweetness to this smooth cup. This tea was meant to be enjoyed by the fire during any season - a bonfire on the beach, or near the fireplace at home on a snowy day. It is an excellent tea hot or iced (we suggest the cold-steeping method for iced tea), with or without milk. It is also excellent for experimentation in culinary pursuits.
Tasting Notes: Smooth smoke from the Lapsang Suochong fills the cup in both aroma and flavour. This strength has been balanced with a pure Keemun black tea, adding subtle malt and cinnamon notes for a well-rounded steep. The liquorice enhances the finish and linger with gentle natural sweetness.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
